As usual it is a brilliant cottage, lovely owner, fantastic location. Can't praise it enough. Going again next year for sure.

February 2017

We had another lovely stay in Nelson's, perfect location and a lovely cottage. We had to go out and purchase some glasses as there were not enough suitable for drinking juice out of and there were no large glasses. The extractor fan control buttons need looking at as sometimes it would only work if you kept you fingers on the buttons.

Thank you very much for your useful feedback! Please rest assured we have now alerted the owner to the points that you raise, so she can take appropriate action. We note that you stay with us regularly - please bear in mind for future reference that we are always happy to help with any little problems which you might experience, and can easily arrange for a maintenance person to visit, or to supply more equipment if needed, during your stay. We hope to see you again soon.

We have been holidaying in Looe for many years staying at various cottages. Nelson's cottage is the best we have ever stayed in. Very clean, comfortable and cosy, the cottage has everything you need. The owners gave great hospitality and we will definitely be returning again.
